hiking

Saturday hike at 11:30am was super quiet. By the time I got done, approximately 90minutes of hiking, more people came. Icy in some spots but the views of Cathedral Spires and the mountain range were magnificent.

Quick little hike not far out of town for when you want a little nature but not to drive too far. The incline at the beginning is a little tough. But nothing you can't handle. Most of the other hikers we saw were kids with their parents. We took the Oxen Draw Trail on the way back for a different view. It seemed like a quieter, more shaded trail that took you through the trees and over small streams.

Nice short hike. Took about 2 hours to complete. Really close to Denver and tons of room for parking. Went at 12:30 on a Saturday in Nov and very minimal people which is a huge plus vs how some of the trails can be. My pup had a great time. I would say lower level of moderate. Ok views, but great tree coverage and nice little escape from the city.

Wonderful loop. We went Friday 11-1pm. Not busy at all on weekdays.Doing the route counter-clockwise you hit an amazing vista about 3-3.5 miles into the hike that is a great resting point.

Had very nice scenery overlooking the mountains on Hummingbird side which made it all worth it... Song bird side not so much. There was hardly anyone there on a Saturday around 10am.
